Draft. Pokal.

A: bright gold with an orange tint. Bright white head, moderate streaming carb.

S: some leafy, citrusy northwest hops.

T: lightly bitter, crisp, crackers malt arrival. Dark, leafy, floral, slightly dank in character. Mildly lingering bitterness.

M: lighter end of mid-weight, crisp, well carbonated.

O: a very crisp and traditional IPA. It's hot, and a little windy here in Austin, but

Deep golden body with a persistent white head.

Pine, floral, and grapefruit hops and a lightly bready malt.

Medium body and bitterness.

Light amber, yellow-gold in color draft-poured into a frosty pint glass.

Subtle, flowery nose.

No heavy hop, citrus or bitterness; some of each though. It is not your traditional big american IPA, just a light, balanced, and easy to drink ale.

Medium to light feel with a decent finish.

I usually go for the big IPAs but this is a very safe and enjoyable selection.

3/28...on tap in Round Rock. Pours a clear orange yellow color. Sharp soapy pine nose bursts. Clean hoppy bitter taste. Lots of flavor. Well carbonated. Tasty IPA.
